My Take on the Harry Potter Collection
Are you a true Harry Potter fan? With this new collection of games you can re-live all of the years where you have come to love Harry, his friends and his enemies. You can start in year one or year five and work your way from there. As you move through the game you will learn how to use magic and be able to work with different characters to be able to accomplish different tasks.
In playing this game, I found that like other LEGO games you have to break things, find hidden items and accomplish different tasks to be able to complete the levels at an expert level. The nice thing about the game is that you can play for hours or just a short period of time and still have a ton of fun.
I loved being able to switch between characters as each is unique and as you come to find their strengths and weaknesses you will have to use them for different reasons.
Being someone that has read all of the books and also watched all of the movies, this game followed the tenor of both the books and the film. It does leave out detail, but I expected that.
In the end you get hours of Harry Potter fun all wrapped up in one collection of games.
If you are a Harry Potter fan and you love gaming, this collection is for you!
